    How Nationalism Will Beat Modern Liberalism

    decided to leave it in for the fun of it don't know where you get these ideas from. If it was true that jobs are getting fewer and fewer, it would follow that unemployment rates would be on a constant rise too. That is not the case. (naturally there is a danger in talking about such things too...

    How Nationalism Will Beat Modern Liberalism

    Ofc lowered prices themselves don't smash an economy, so to me the interesting question is whether markets can be opened up too quickly for a country and whether governments do enough to redistribute the wealth generated. Why are they unlikely to generate more wealth than their parents? (maybe...

    How Nationalism Will Beat Modern Liberalism

    if you would claim that only the top 1% of the income benefits from trade and globalization, then you largely seem to deny or ignore that extreme poverty has been in a constant decrease. If you accept this fact, you will also have to accept that a lot more than just the top 1% has benefitted...

    How Nationalism Will Beat Modern Liberalism

    not sure I understand any part of the opening post. but ignoring that, and just talking about nationalism and globalization: In the west we are seeing increasing nationalism, e.g brexit and Trump. Economically globalization has been a boon for far more than it has been a bad thing. The amount...

    Changing type

    Agreed that type is set from very early stages). before continuing, are you one that equals specific actions with functions? E.G he likes to run to he must be a sensor. That's at least the only way I can see how you can say that it is "fully supported" by the theory. Children have...

    Changing type

    Really ? If anything I would say it would be the other way around (and also unlikely to be an intuitive/sensing thing) . But it is much more expected of boys to be running around and doing sports when very young so it would make a lot more sense if people did sports when very young, and then...

    Am I really an INTP?

    bah lost my post I was writing : ( in short: There is nothing inherent in your choices that would make you one type or the other. I am sure the person *you are* and upbringing/environment plays an important role in there as well. What is more relevant in order to discover your type, is how...

    The process of functions in reasoning.

    I think it is a very good question.. Also very difficult to answer. I don't think people cycle through functions as I have never seen that. I think people would often stick to the use of 1 or 2 functions depending on the setting. Most often their first two functions. After taking some more...

    N as a factor of INTP.

    I do disagree, but for a different reason than with the math thingy. In a sense, if you want to include very many things in a system you often weaken it, and if you wish to include everything, you render it useless. MBTI isn't just about behavior, but it has its strength and focus in making...

    N as a factor of INTP.

    yeah that was the missing part : ) . I would love to hear your thoughts as I have never thought about this. Could I convince you to tell me your thoughts in for instance a pm? (or some other mean). It would be very appreciated .

    N as a factor of INTP.

    :phear: I think you misunderstand slightly. I dont write to hurt people's feelings. I never claimed that you need to build a proof base, as that would be completely against what I am saying. I am saying that if MBTI by its very nature cannot be proved, it is pointless and misleading to have...

    Is "close minded" related with "J"

    I personally don't put too much stock into p/j as any useful assessement tool within MBTI; not as long as you use functions to navigate and understand people's behavior. I think I have seen many 'p' people who are much more close minded than 'j' people. What Polaris writes about social...

    N as a factor of INTP.

    I am not very good at knowing whether people are joking or actually serious when reading very very silly things. If you would think that Si is a source of wanting to E.G eat then sigh.. to the actual thread.. (again I don't know whether it is just a joke or whether the OP is actually serious...

    E,I,N,S,T,F,J,P don't exist

    meh. It is taken for granted because that is the definition of an INTP. Personality types are not real or have a conrete form as such. You should (I think so at least) think of MBTI as a reflection or a way to mirror the real world, but not as the real world itself. You can obviously find people...

    E,I,N,S,T,F,J,P don't exist

    ah. Sorry it wasn't all clear what your point was (and for me there are still a few unknowns) Either you think of Pi, Je (fx) as concrete, real and measureable, whereas you think of N, S, etc. as forms without meaning until they are manifested in either introversion or extroversion. If the...

    E,I,N,S,T,F,J,P don't exist

    So you are just suggesting a change of notation rather than a new theory as far as I can read. I personally think that they serve the purpose that I imagine them intended. E.G that whether you are Ni or Ne dom, you are still N dom. The intuitives share common characteristica, which to me is why...

    Philosophy and Type?

    I would be outright shocked if it would turn out as you suggest. Eliminating heritage and culture seems a bit extreme : p It would however make sense if say ST's were the category least likely to be religious for instance.

    In terms of MBTI I have not been up to that much. I guess I always try to refine my understanding of people, but not in any meticulous manner. But interesting that you have a feel that you now know what all types look like! Would love to have a little chat about that : ) . Otherwise I guess I am...

    ENTJ, INTJ, or INTP?

    Mysty I think you ask good quesitons : ) . And you are right, Ne dom is not exactly a fitting typing : p I do suggest S, as I mostly want him to be a Te type (and I still for the moment stick to Te dom) But I will be honest, the thing that makes me the most in doubt about him and his type, is...

    ENTJ, INTJ, or INTP?

    Te dom .. Conclusions stay the same as before.. I know we keep this discussion both on and off thread now, but I would be interested in hearing people's opinion on the possibility of ESTJ instead of ENTJ, if they agree/see where I am heading. ENTJ is still the most likely type however. A...

    I wouldn't read anything into the 7 intellegences..

    ENTJ, INTJ, or INTP?

    I would not mind seeing another video. Like yourself I have little patience with Pod-lair typing; Not that it is wrong to say that types do show visual tells (I think most observations would point towards that), but all that hive-mind cult thing is ridiculous. But I am getting more and more...

    ENTJ, INTJ, or INTP?

    own8ge He is difficult to type and there are typically two possible reasons whenever such doubt arise 1) there is something mentally wrong with him, making him more difficult to work with 2) he is a type that you rarely see in his gender and therefore it takes time to understand his type To...

    ENTJ, INTJ, or INTP?

    You are not an INTP.. That typing is wrong. To be more precise, I think your own typing is good, and I do think that you are an ENTJ. I would however be open to a reconsideration of your auxuliary function, meaning that I am open to the ESTJ type. But perhaps I only say that out of being modest...

    Help typing me, please

    I think ENTP is the most likely one. INTP as second, however ENTP has a decent lead in my head Edit: In fact skip the INTP suggestion. ENTP is much more likely, and I am tempted to go as far as saying 'that is your type'

    Pod'Lair review

    Table of Philosophy and Human Mind

    well.. The table is absurd.. I don't see how you can even remotely justify the connections that it claims. As for the two circles, I don't fully understand them to tell the truth.. Don't understand why the opposite of rationalism is existentialism. It would be nice with an elaboration of the...

    I would imagine an INTP&INTP relationship to be fun at first but later on replaced with a sort of stagnation, as neither of you can really bring anything 'new' to the table. It naturally would differ from personality to personality, but I think from a theoretical perspective, you would benefit...

    Is 'highly educated' synonymous with 'highly intelligent'?

    For the sake of answering something else than 'NO' : I believe that there is a corelation between educataion and intelligence. I.E the avarage IQ score of the students participating is often higher the further they got in the educational system. From personal experience, I would also say that...

    On functions and MBTI; Approaching typology

    This thread was written as a semi response to BigApplePi's entry concerning whether we use 4 or 8 functions. I try to talk about MBTI on some different levels.

    Eight Cognitive Functions or Just Four?

    Naturally, the idea of functions are used to describe a way of which we interact with the world; internally and externally. Personally I never enjoyed the idea of shadow functions, or if you will, the latter 4 functions.. The reason is that I do not find it necessary to talk about them, as...

    I'm turning 20 in a week

    This seems very familiar.. You should try not and get annoyed by the lack of comments..

I find the whole idea of 'I am turning 20...
